Message from our Chairman

From comparatively small beginnings in 2009, Abu Dhabi Turkish Business Council or TBC as it is now popularly known, has grown in stature and influence with members comprising of corporate and individuals. TBC is a non-profit organization.
I would like to draw your attention to the vibrancy of the young and highly educated population of Turkey and it’s growing economy (16th largest economy in 2011). It becomes clearer each day that Turkey provides many opportunities for Emirati businesses of all types. We work strongly to enhance the business potential between Turkey and UAE. The Membership to TBC gives members access to key decision makers within the Turkish government and business communities. Conversely, members also enjoy the support of the UAE government and Institutions in their efforts to create business opportunities.
The TBC works closely with the Turkish Trade Attaché at the Turkish Embassy. Prospects also exist for members to widen their social contacts within the business community and elsewhere by participating in a number of social and business events, a number of which are organized and staged at the Turkish Embassy by kind permission of the Turkish Ambassador.
Links with other business groups in Abu Dhabi and regional Turkish Business Groups remain a strong part of our focus with those groups take place to provide a platform for exchange of views and opinions on business activities.
The membership profile encompasses many different disciplines and offers members and guests networking opportunities throughout the year by means of monthly luncheon or dinner events. “Get 2 Gether” is our regular networking event (normally held on the first Monday of each month). This event provides our guests venue to meet, socialize, discuss business opportunities of local interest, all with the purpose of promoting and enhancing business and trade relations between Abu Dhabi and Turkey.
I invite you to join us to enhance your business network and utilize the support and assistance we provide to strengthen your businesses related to UAE and Turkey.


Ibrahim Eskiocak
